Building a large garden on a budget

Some plants I saw at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – May 2014

There were some plants that were everywhere – why is that? I imagine the RHS judges turning up with a juggernaut of plants, dropping a few off at each show garden and saying “See what you can make with those”!

    Lovely photos Kristen, some truly amazing plants many of which I’ve never heard of before and here was me thinking I knew a wee bit about plants, that will be a no then! Thanks for letting me see what I was missing. Maybe next year I’ll blow the budget and try to go before I get too old to hold my own in the scrum of people. Were there any stalls selling shin and elbow pads? Years ago when I went with my brother I distinctly remember he was muttering that he should have worn his cricket pads and could have done with his box?, but being female I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about!

    Especially like the Iris, Anchusa and Cornus Kousa Chinensis. Tried growing the latter years ago with zero success, it didn’t find Scotland bonny!
